Composer Stephen Sondheim and book writer John Weidman will take to the New York City Center stage following an upcoming performance of their musical Road Show. The two are set to participate in a talkback after the July 27 matinee.
The musical is the third and final title of City Center's 2019 Encores! Off-Center series. Performances begin July 24.
Off-Center Artistic Director Anne Kauffman will moderate the discussion, which will also include the production's director and choreographer, Will Davis.
Tony nominees Brandon Uranowitz and Raúl Esparza will star as brothers Addison and Wilson Mizner, with Tony winner Chuck Cooper as Papa Mizner, Tony nominee Mary Beth Peil as Mama Mizner, and Jin Ha (M. Butterfly) as Hollis Bessemer.
Rounding out the ensemble are Brandon Contreras, Rheaume Crenshaw, Daniel Edwards, Marina Kondo, Jay Lusteck, Liz McCartney, Matt Moisey, Shereen Pimentel, Sharone Sayegh, and Vishal Vaidya.
Road Show—known formerly as Bounce, Wise Guys, and Gold!—began its long-gestating development at New York Theatre Workshop in 1999. The musical, about the Mizner brothers' pursuit of fortune from gold rush to real estate boom, subsequently played Chicago and Washington, D.C., before returning to New York at the Public Theater in 2008.
